Why does the mainstream media let Al Sharpton get away with saying anything he wants, when others who exercise their free speech are lampooned by the media until they are either brought down or made to believe in the "groupthink" that liberals espouse? I smell hypocrisy. Again.
According to Al Sharpton, who recently was at the forefront of those demanding Imus be fired over making insensitive remarks on the radio, has now made insensitive remarks himself about one of America's largest religions, essentially saying Mormons don't believe in God. Since what he is saying is preposterous, I'm not going to waste time defending my faith. Those with half a brain will understand that Mormons, as Christians, certainly believe in God.
BOSTON (AP) - The Rev. Al Sharpton, who recently urged that radio host Don Imus be fired for making a racially insensitive remark, said in a debate that "those of us who believe in God" will defeat Republican Mitt Romney for the White House. But Sharpton denied he was questioning the Mormon's own belief in God.
Rather, the New York Democrat said he was contrasting himself with Christopher Hitchens, the atheist author he was debating at the time.
"As for the one Mormon running for office, those who really believe in God will defeat him anyways, so don't worry about that; that's a temporary situation," Sharpton said Monday during a debate with Hitchens at the New York Public Library's Beaux-Arts headquarters.
